“Don’t meditate to fix yourself, to improve yourself, to redeem yourself; rather, do it as an act of love, of deep warm friendship to yourself. In this way there is no longer any need for the subtle aggression of self-improvement, for the endless guilt of not doing enough. It offers the possibility of an end to the ceaseless round of trying so hard that wraps so many people’s lives in a knot. Instead there is now meditation as an act of love. How endlessly delightful and encouraging.” Bob Sharples, Calming The Mind

“As I reflect, I’m really grateful to you for helping me on my mental health journey. Attending your Wednesday sessions as well as listening to your meditations have helped me deal with negative thoughts and emotions. I liked what you said in the recent Meeting Anxiety meditation that it’s okay to be anxious, and anxiety is not permanent. We are not always anxious. It’s something simple but it helped me to be calm. I also enjoy all of your poetry, particularly the one on Silence.” Participant, Wednesday Pause
There In The Stillness by Show You Love (extract).
There in the stillness, the whisper of angel’s wings
There in the stillness a place for beggars and kings
There in the stillness a fluttering of the soul
There in the stillness someone broken is being made whole
There in the rest a river of life overflows
There in the rest a fruitful garden grows
There in the rest I am anchored and secure
There in the rest is a joy so real and pure
